    • In terms of the new directives by the Department, employers may enact a policy of mandatory vaccinations, but that the process must be accompanied by a thorough consultation process and must respect the rights of the employee.
    • Employers should consider all less intrusive and restrictive means to ensure occupational health and safety.
    • An employee’s right to bodily integrity may in limited instances be reasonably and proportionally limited.
    • An employee must consent to being vaccinated.
    • It is essential that any employer planning to implement mandatory workplace vaccinations must notify affected employees of their right to refuse vaccination on constitutional or medical grounds.
    • An employee may not summarily be dismissed for refusing to be vaccinated. Instead, reasonable steps must be taken by the employer to accommodate a refusing employee.
